1st August - open for business?

Do shops, banks and touristy businesses like car-hire stay open on 1st August, which I believe this year is the official BC Day holiday?

Most businesses will be open except banks and government offices though some will have shorter operating hours. 99.9% of restaurants will be open.

It's what I think you would call a bank hol. Schools too and white collar offices. Retail and tourism will be in full sellers' regalia.

It's one of the busiest summer weekends - any tourism services will most certainly be open.
